Standards and Operational Guidance for Ethics Review of Health-Related Research with Human Participants

Our colleagues at AAHRPP recently brought to our attention a new World Health Organization publication, “Standards and Operational Guidance for Ethics Review of Health-Related Research with Human Participants.” This document "has been developed for individuals and organizations involved in health-related research with human participants, including biomedical, behavioural, social science, and epidemiological research...In particular, this document is intended to provide guidance to the research ethics committees (RECs) on which organizations rely to review and oversee the ethical aspects of research, as well as to the researchers who design and carry out health research studies."
